I have been stringing lower and lower as I age. Right now I am using co-poly hybrids in the lower 50s. If you have decent strokes and use racket head speed/spin to control your shots....you can use a much lower tension. I used to hit a much flater ball and required a softer frame.. and a higher tension to gain control. I also used to stay with tighter string patterns to help with control. I moved to SW FH and more eastern on my OHBH. Most of the frames out there these days are being designed for modern strokes. Trying to hit classics old school strokes can be a problem.
